Feels like Spring might be arriving, very mild today, so mild infact that I removed a layer of clothing tonight when milking, so if we wake up with two foot of snow tomorrow on the ground, you know who to blame. Forget the Spring Equinox, the first day of Spring is when I remove my fleece hat when milking. Lol
Smudge's pups are now eight days old and if you compare the photo's tonight with the ones from when they where just born, you hopefully will see how much they have grown, especially if you look at how much space they take up along Mum now when suckling.
Another video of Smudge's pups at the milk bar, don't think you can get to much of a good thing when watching puppies. I must confess to a bit of an addiction of smelling puppies, they do smell so gorgeous at this age and happily when holding them close against your face they will try to suck your nose or the children let them attach themselves to their earlobes. Smudge is just so laid back about it all and this will fare well for the pups as they grow and interact with Mum and learn from Mum how to take on the world outside the whelping box.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
